Summary: My grandson had hoped to record his daily experiences so he always had his camcorder with him but unfortunately he died last December & was quite incapacitated the last month of his life to use it like he wanted which frustrated him but after his death my daughter & son- in- law gave the camcorder to one of his buddies who is in remission from bone cancer & he is using it a lot - thanks
Summary: I had the previous model of this camera and hated it because it performed really poorly in low light, so I gambled on this one and it really paid off. It works great in pretty much any light and seems to be very good quality for the money. It goes out of focus on occasion, but that's probably some setting I have wrong. Would defiantly recommend this camera.
Summary: I love this camera! I had one before but, unfortunately, it was stolen. I was glad to be able to find one on eBay. It is a great camcorder and easy to use. I use this a lot with my granddaughter. She is 2 and often tells me to "stop ". So I am able to use it at a distance while using the close-up feature without annoying her and able to record her in a natural setting. It charges quickly and holds a charge for at least several hours.
Summary: I'm a rank amateur & this digital camcorder is easy to use and takes good quality movies even though it's not HD.I just want to capture memories. I love the zoom which also allows me to take still pictures from further away than my little point and shoot. Delivered in under a week.
Summary: I received this yesterday (22 Apr 2011). INITIAL THOUGHTS I wanted a basic camcorder to capture the typical kids events, vacation stuff, etc. I'm not trying to make pro quality videos, so the Standard Definition is fine...the widescreen format is a plus. Prior to purchasing this, my main concerns were what file type it would record as and how smoothly the transfer to my computer would go.
Summary: This has been a nightmare! I called Apple, researched for hours, and still couldn't find how to make this camera compatible with iMacs and iMovie. Well, it took a call to Canon where I spoke with a very pleasant representative after zero wait! Here's how you do it: 1) Open up iMovie 2) Turn on your camera 3) Display your recorded clip on the camera screen (don't play it just display it) 4) Plug the USB into the computer USB port (no firewire necessary) Voila!!
